    Ice cream recipe with no ice cream freezer?

    It's my daughter's birthday on Monday and I'd like to make some primal ice cream. I saw some recipes but they require an ice cream freezer which I don't have. I have never made ice cream without one, does anybody know how? Can I use the same type of recipe? I can google how to make ice cream without an ice cream freezer but I didn't know if you need to adjust the recipes.

    No need to adjust the recipe. You just have to stir the freezing mixture thoroughly every 15-45 minutes (the more often you stir the creamier the result but the longer it takes).

    Try this:
    Knox Unflavoured Gelatine - Recipes

    you can also just throw down some coconut milk with frozen fruit. It will whip up like ice cream in a food processor. Or you can slice a banana, freeze it, then pulverize it in food processor until it reaches soft serve consistency.

    Thanks guys! I found this online as well - How To Make Ice Cream Without a Machine | David Lebovitz
    good instructional tutorial.

    I think I'm going to make a custard with heavy whipping cream, fresh coconut milk (I have a coconut I need to make into milk) and some bananas and strawberries. I don't think it will need sweetened that way. Also quite tempted to make a lightly sweetened dark mint ice cream as well, but we'll see if I can resist

    Without sugar even heavy cream will freeze quite solid at freezer temperatures, you might want to add 1-2 tsp of brandy, liqueur or vodka to soften it a bit.

    I thought about that. But you know... that would then become a very slippery slope. I'd almost RATHER have it be more difficult so I don't end up eating ice cream all the time. Not that it would be too bad if it isn't sweetened, but still...

    Got some homemade vanilla in coconut rum... I bet that would be good!

    Eh, you might make it a lot at first, but after the novelty wore off, I bet you wouldn't make it excessively. And I say it's better to make it yourself than give in and buy the abominations offered by the marketplace.
